Convergence lines and perspectives

ARTICLE -

As far as the eye can see

The highly singular identity of Michel Reybier’s different estates and properties are the result of a meticulous sculpting of landscapes. Each site’s unique blend of convergence lines and perspectives reveals a distinctive structure and an understated elegance that lends a graphic identity to the land and creates panoramas whose beauty and vitality do not leave indifferent.

At La Réserve Ramatuelle, a magnificent entrance was created around a stunning, endless view of the sea, and La Villa du Lac in Geneva offers utter, absolute communion with the shimmering lake before it. Guests at La Réserve Paris Hotel & Spa will delight in the lines of the Haussmann-era architecture of the building’s facade as well as those of the cozy Duc de Morny Library, where they are invited to unwind as they please.
The Hotel Schweizerhof Zermatt offers dazzling views of the Matterhorn, while the garden at La Maison d’Estournel seems to flow seamlessly into a vast century-old park overlooking the famous pagodas of Cos d’Estournel. Finally, renovations at Cos d’Estournel have enhanced the effect of convergence lines, resulting in a series of layers of perspectives in the vat room and cellars that are a perfect counterpoint to the site’s historic edifice.

At each of Michel Reybier’s estates, there are the naturally occurring perspectives of rows of vines, like a constant invitation to look further afield. The vines at La Mascaronne, for instance, have embraced the curves of the ring shape of the land, where they thrive before majestic views of the Massif des Maures mountain range.

Michel Reybier’s dedication to enhancing and promoting these inspiring perspectives is the driving force behind his vision for his hotels, where unique atmospheres are designed for guests to feel at home and let their imaginations run free.

It is what fueled him to equip the estate with gravity-feed facilities, in order to manipulate the estate’s grapes with utmost respect, in the gentlest fashion. It is also what pushed him to craft a fine white wine from grapes grown on land situated along the far reaches of the Médoc and the Gironde Estuary, a place whipped by winds and sea spray, and an authentic, locally grown rosé from grapes grown at La Mascaronne in the Provençal countryside, far from the dazzling lights of the French Riviera. It is also what drives him to create wide-open spaces at each of his properties that invite guests to look far, far beyond.

All in all a magnificent series of open, free perspectives that Michel Reybier is dedicated to pursuing with curiosity and conviction. To do otherwise would be impossible.
